absolute slander or libel or whatever you want to call it to say they were beloved by Argyle fans!!!! shame for those who lost their jobs ut they were horrid flaky and no where near beloved.

never tried one wrote:
Plymouth Argyle fans’ favourite pasty company is being shut down and all 20 staff made redundant – but there are still hopes it can be resurrected.

Pilgrim Pasties Ltd, which both made and sold the snacks and was voted the tops by fans of the Greens, has ceased trading today (Wednesday, February 19, 2020), after going into liquidation.

Liquidators were due to start a redundancy process at noon. But there are hopes the Walkham Business Park-based firm, which has baking experience stretching back nearly 50 years and has a city centre outlet in Plymouth Market, can still be saved.

Sheffield-based investor and turnaround expert Marek Niedzwiedz, who had acquired the company, continues to work on a rescue package which would save the business, its employees, and its manufacturing, wholesale and retail arms.

But he said his plan has been “stalled” because another firm also wants to take control of Pilgrim Pasties.

“I kept trading on Monday and Tuesday but had to stop trading today,” Mr Niedzwiedz said. “At noon today the liquidators will make the staff redundant.”
He said he was “disappointed” the business had closed but “definitely” wanted to reboot the firm and said: “I hope to do something.”

Mr Niedzwiedz, who has been involved with 148 companies during his career, acquired Pilgrim Pasties on January 22, 2020, with a plan to turn it around.
But the 42-year-old entrepreneur encountered problems and a winding up meeting took place on Friday, February 14.

That resulted in a Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) and liquidators at Greenfield Recovery Limited were appointed.

A resolution at that meeting said: “That it has been proved to the satisfaction of this meeting that the company cannot, by reason of its current and/or impending liabilities continue its business, and that it is advisable to wind up the same under an insolvent winding up procedure.”
Pilgrim Pasties describes itself as one of the Plymouth area’s leading bakery wholesalers and a “pasty specialist” and bakes during the night so all products are fresh in the morning.

It was set up in 2009 by Darren Burgess and experienced pasty maker Paul Coombes, after the latter sold his established pasty company to a larger concern.

Pilgrim Pasties quickly expanded and by 2013 moved from a portable building to large premises at Burrington Way, and boasted of making 30,000 pasties a week and turning over nearly £2million a year.
The firm was boosted by winning a contest in The Herald in 2012 to supply Plymouth Argyle FC. Supporters voted Pilgrim their favourite pasty maker meaning its products were sold at Home Park.

The company is also a vegetable wholesalers and supplied schools, greengrocers and other fruit and vegetable businesses, running a free delivery service.

Mr Niedzwiedz believes the business remains viable and said that if he can save it he anticipates growing it.Pilgrim Pasties demise has come just two months after another pasty maker, Warrens Bakery, shut about 20 stores, including five in Plymouth, and one of its factories.

The 160-year-old firm blamed Brexit uncertainty and fickle consumers and cited “an ever-changing market environment, where consumers demand greater product and pricing choice”.


i recall that poll this firm won was very iffy as fans at the time were furious they won and the club alledergy already decided on them.

Crap pasty makers deserve to go to the wall.

Yet to try Malcolm Barncutts, Biggest disappointment was Anns down the Lizard. Might have been amazing but they seemed to cook them in a nuclear reactor
